I'm a 19 year old male, that feels like a 13 year-old boy sometimes... Blood work and Urine Tests are below...
What I'm experiencing is:
*Excessive Body Hair Inconsistent With Familial History
*Relatively High Pitched Voice in comparison to peers
*Non-Broadening of Shoulders
*Feel younger than peers that even I am older than
*High Blood Pressure
*Trouble Getting To Sleep Even Though Tired
What concerns me the most is while they consider my testosterone 'normal', it's 368, and in combination with my symptoms and age, couldn't this be considered low? Additionally, as you can see from the below lab work, I've out-of-range (high) cortisol levels, and out of range (extremely low) ACTH levels.
*Being that normally High Cortisol + Low ACTH = Cushing's Syndrome w/ Adrenal Tumor, could Adrenal caused Cushing's Syndrome cause Low Testosterone Levels?
*My doctor ordered two additional UFC's to compare to what are below, and we're waiting to hear back.... but in interim.... what is your input based on what we know right now?
